Loved this movie! Having grown up Irish on Long Island, in a broken family, I can vouch for its authenticity. From the kitschy plastic Christmas decorations on the front lawn to the tough slang of the brothers, it’s L.I. all the way.
In the movie, the father left the family 20 years ago, and now comes back and expects to spend Christmas with his”family” again–his ex-wife and seven children–even though many want nothing to do with him.
The film has a great natural flow, and it’s charming throughout. It was great to see Ed Burns again and he’s picked a great ensemble for his movie.
I haven’t seen many of his movies but plan to catch up.
Been there done that.
Tired subject. Too many holes. 1.Why did dad leave? Maybe 7 kids were too much for him. 2.Maybe mom was nuts. 3.And what’s Nora’s story? Shes from Boston and……? 4.And the pregnant sister? The scene where the brother goes to save her is weak. 5.Why does Ed still live with mom? Each sibling has issues. 6.What’s the relationship between the old sick lady and the mother? This isn’t new. I grew up almost next door to Mr. Burns, and large Irish families aren’t all dysfunctional. I was sorry that the mother gave in in the end. He did manage to leave room for seven sequels.I don’t think Ed needed to have seven siblings. If he reduced the number of siblings and their issues, he would have been able to add more substance to the main subject…mom and dad’s relationship.
